YESTERDAY AND TODAY

**YESTERDAY. Before I completed my daily blog, I drove to Orrville to Buehler's grocery

store to have copies made of 1 document, to the post office to mail it, return receipt 

requested, but not overnight. At both places I was videoing/audioing, telling only the one

selling stamps and not at Buehler's because of that rat fink that told on me once before. 

The one selling stamps and offering other services is the only that's still working there 

when I worked there. I cannot give out names because of the Privacy Act of 1974, so 

please don't ask. He has always laughs and/or smiles at things I've said and I had a 

delightful time in talking with him. His wife is a retired postmistress and as I left after he 

mailed my letter, I said "please say Hi to __________." I then drove to Rite Aid for 2 

prescription medications, the one for me was Sarah Palin (Seroquel), 100 mg that I take 

with my Sarah Palin 400 mg each night. My webcam stopped working because the SD 

(Storage Device) was full and I could not find another 1 in the Honda so I'll have to wait 

for another time to videoing and/or audioing in Rite Aid. 

After driving back to the house, I finished my daily blog and shared 2 videos, not mine, 

that where related to my daily blog of the day.

I then went outdoors to work in the flower beds and the yard where I lightly watered 

areas of the yard that have weeds and then spreading Weed and Feed which promises to

kill everything but the grass. It had called for rain, but nothing unless it rained after I 

came indoors and so I watered all the flower beds and the brown dead weed places in the

yard and not where I had spread Weed and Seed. I came indoors about 4:30, showered, 

dressed, prepared and ate my salad while watching 'Criminal Minds' on TV, and then said 

my simple prayer and went to bed. 

**TODAY. After publishing my daily blog and hopefully 1 postcrossing, I have about 10 

videos on YouTube to process, publish and share. I hope to publish at least 4 today.

I also need to, time permitting, drive to Wooster to Lowes and Walmart for another bag

of Weed and Seed, coffee filters, gluten free foods at Walmart, picture postcards at the 

Wooster College bookstore and a packing and shipping store that sells Amish picture 

postcards. 

I need to spend as much time as I can outdoors weeding, planting the discounted plants 

that are setting under the peach tree in the southwest corner flower bed, sowing some 

grass seed in appropriate places, digging up and dividing plants to plant in other flower 

beds, loading, filling, placing my new humming bird and 2 bird new feeders. Ryan wanted 

tree to be planted in Bill's memory, we both deciding a peach tree would be appropriate. I  
propose to dig up in the back an area the size of 5 feet diameter, planting the peach tree in 

the middle, spreading black mulch to surround it and then placing stone steps to the tree. 

The weather forecast calls for high and low temperatures of 84° and 68° with showers. My

Acurite Weather Gauge displays a present temperature of 62°, a barometric pressure of 

29.92 and a little over a half moon tonight.

As I've said before "we'll see what the rest of the day brings."


I HAVE SOMETHING ON MY MIND

**The past few days I've typed about eating healthy, my speeding ticket and poop. I typed 

yesterday that "I always have several things on my mind, like women who are 

multitaskers, but I ain't no woman." For the life of me, right now, I can't think of anything 

to say. Maybe, at my age, I'm having the beginnings of that malady that bothers older 

folks like me, dementia. 

By the Mayo Clinic and by the Mayo Clinic Staff:

"Dementia isn't a specific disease. Instead, dementia describes a group of symptoms 

affecting memory, thinking and social abilities severely enough to interfere with daily 

functioning.

Though dementia generally involves memory loss, memory loss has different causes. So 

memory loss alone doesn't mean you have dementia.

Alzheimer's disease is the most common cause of a progressive dementia in older adults, 

but there are a number of causes of dementia. Depending on the cause, some dementia 

symptoms can be reversed."

http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/dementia/home/ovc-20198502.

When my heart stopped (not a heart attack that Father had which took his life) in February

of 1998, the doctors told ones close to me that I had brain damage and it might heal in 

time and would possibly live as much as 2 years and here I am 19 years later and I'm 

thankful to God for that. 

And from above in quotations, "Depending on the cause, some dementia symptoms can 

be reversed," and maybe if I have the beginnings of dementia, my dementia symptoms can 

be reversed. 

I still have a lot of goals and challenges that I need my memory for, here on earth, and 

hopefully I can stick around for a while yet.
